He didn’t actually play “Jesus,” his character was named Jesus, but I made him look like one anyway.
Ray Allen is in his 19th and possibly last NBA season, while most of us will forever remember his illustrious career on the day he gives up his jersey, some of us will also remember what he did on the silver screen. Believe it or not, Ray once starred in a Spike Lee Joint called “He Got Game” in 1998 along side Denzel Washington. The future Hall of Famer played the character of “Jesus Shuttlesworth,” who was a highly recruited high school basketball star dealing with the struggles of choosing the right college. Since the release of the movie, the name of his character has always stuck with Ray and his Heat teammates still call him by his character to this day.
From FOX Sports Florida:
Miami guard Mario Chalmers called it “one of my favorite movies.’’ He said Allen’s teammates sometimes call him by his character’s name.
“We do it sometimes during games when he catches a hot streak o

AROUND THE WEB
MIAMI Ray Allen heard the whispers in Seattle. He got wind of them in Boston. Now hes heard some in Miami.
Whenever Allen has gone into a shooting slump in recent years, he's been aware of talk that perhaps hes finally getting close to the end of the line.
When I was 31, people said that. They said it when I was 34, said Allen, 37, who is in his first season with the Heat...

Code.org recently released a public service announcement aimed at improving computer coding courses offered in elementary and high schools. The PSA included testimonials from some of the world’s leading technological pioneers, including Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter creator Jack Dorsey. Oh, and Chris Bosh was there too. The Miami Heat center has done his fair share of...
LeBron James continues to troll, troll, troll his boat prior to NBA games in the form of some nasty dunks. We wrote about LeBron trolling regarding the dunk contest last week, and he continued to do the same prior to the Heat’s last game. Check out Bron’s basic alley-oop to himself between his legs dunk. No big deal, wouldn’t even register at the dunk contest.
Tweet Earlier this week we gave you video of LeBron James performing a sick dunk in warm-ups that would have registered pretty high scores in a dunk contest. Tuesday before the Heat played the Kings LeBron pulled another amazing dunk out of his bag of tricks, this time going between his legs mid-air with relative ease: [...]
The Big Leagues One fan responds to the King.
LeBron James is on a monster of a tear, which continued Tuesday with King James scoring a season-high 40 points in a 141-129 double-overtime win over the Sacramento Kings. Forty is a ridiculous number but seems almost pedestrian for superhuman LeBron.
James made 14-of-23 field goals and 11-of-12 free throws in the shootout. He nearly put together another triple-double with 16...
Lil Wayne may have underestimated the power behind his words when he decided to go on a mini “Hit Em Up” rant mirroring Tupac, when he publicly displayed his disdain for the Miami Heat. Then again I can’t imagine the self-proclaimed best rapper alive not knowing the magnitude of his words. Wayne knew he opened up Pandora’s box when he claimed he had sex with Adrienne Bosh...
Say it isn’t so!?! Unless you have been living in a cave you may have seen video – or live, if you’re extremely lucky – of LeBron James insane pregame dunks. You know the self alley-oop, between-the-legs dunk that have fans wanting more. However, some have criticized him about his resistance with the Slam Dunk contest, [...]The post LeBron James May Quit Pregame Dunk Routines...
SPIKE LEE APPROVES
Ray Allen's Heat teammates apparently have taken to referring to him as "Jesus" in reference to the name of the character Allen played in the 1998 film, He Got Game.
Oh, nothing to see here folks. Just LeBron James putting on a little dunk contest prior to the Heat’s game against the Cavs on Sunday. ‘Bron has continually trolled the world about his possible inclusion in the NBA’s dunk contest, and he didn’t participate again this year. After seeing this video of him dunking you can bet this will spark another round of “if only LeBron...
It was a long game, the Kings took the defending champs, Heat all the way to double overtime in hopes to come out of Miami with a win, but then LeBron James happened and the Kings were sent off on the road with another loss. Tyreke Evans wanted to play until the time expired, so he went ahead and stole the basketball from Dwyane Wade in the final seconds at an attempt decrease the...
Fans can sure be stupid sometimes.
Here you have one of the best basketball players to ever play the game, and he likes to put on a little show during warm-ups for the fans by performing some crazy dunks. What do we do? We complain and harass the man about not performing in the Dunk Contest.
This should be the point where I say I get it; that I'm with you fans, but...
Uh oh, better bring out the wheelchair!
If there is one certain thing that we all know and can agree on, it is that you don’t give yourself a nickname. While I blossomed as G$ once I discovered the internet, I have to give credit to Big Dick Daddy Sping for calling me that in high school. I’m not going to reveal names but some of you will get who I’m talking about, but at...
